Hi Guys. Lots Happened.


Well it seemed like a lot in my mind.... Shut Up!

No Really. I have been at my wits the last couple of weeks. A lot has happened and there's a lot to cover. So let's get started shall we?

It all started the night before Valentine's. I was at my Fitness Center when Cory text me that Lou, my beloved kitty, had some sort of sore that jutted right out of his back thigh suddenly out of no where and he was bleeding all over the house. Once I got home and had a look at it I decided it must be a spider bite or something. I'll spare you the bloody picture of what this gory golf ball sized mound of mess looked like..but one word to describe it is just AWFUL. Since the bleeding had subsided we decided to just let Lou chill in the bathroom with the door open and the kitty gate blocking the entrance until Cory could get him to the Vet the next morning. I gave Lou Treats and pampered him and made sure he had all his toys and blankets in the bathroom with him. He was perfectly content. He acted no different, like this wound wasn't even felt.

The next day, Valentine's, I went to work and Cory took Lou to the Vet. I text Cory every 10 Minutes wanting to know about my cat. The I get a reply from Cory that made me instantly burst into tears.


The wound that shot up out of no where was a tumor. The Vet clearly told his that it would never heal, there were other tumors growing inside of him, and that if we removed it surgically than it would most likely come back more aggressive and faster. This cancer is a side effect from vaccinations that Lou most likely was given as a kitten, before I adopted him 5 years ago. It most likely had been growing for years. They sent Cory home with wipes and morphine. The Vet said that Lou would let us know when he was suffering.

To spare myself of going through this long sad tale once again I'll just cut to the chase. I had to euthanize my cat last Friday. He started bleeding out so much that the Vet said keeping him was only causing him more pain. It took all the strength to in my being to load my best friend up and take him to his death. He was the best broken cat you could ever ask for. Sir Lou.

My birthday was around this time as well. Despite Lou not feeling well we decided that it would be best to get out of the house even for a few hours and that we did. A night filled with Sushi and Drag Shows and Friends was what ended up happening and I had a fantastic time.

I got all dressed up with my new slightly Ginger Hair and fantastic Raven Dress and went dancing at Club One, a local gay bar, with my sister, Cory, and 3 girlfriends. Had a blast and a half and every time I went to the stage to give the lovely Performers my dollars they stopped lip syncing just long enough to coo over my outfit or hair or makeup. I felt super cute before we left, but when those beautiful women told me I was gorgeous that just made my night!

Oh and Cory made me a Peanut Butter Frosted Devil Food's Cake!

Cory also got me a Vitamix Professional Series for my Birthday and these awesome heels for Valentine's!

And of course a morning after picture. LOL

So now I'm sitting here getting ready for surgery. Yep, that's right. It's in around 10 hours and my stomach is all twisted in knots just thinking about it. I'm all washed off and I haven't ate anything that wasn't water or broth today. All I want is ice cream right now! :) I took some before pictures so everyone can see the difference and hopefully so will I. Nervous does not even touch what I'm feeling at the moment. I've never been under the knife for anything and to think that I'm about to get a huge procedure done that was my decision is beyond me. The girls at my office said I was nuts for putting these pictures up for everyone to see. Well they were right! I am nuts! I just hope that this might help anyone who has questions about what a body looks like after losing 120 pounds. And how it looks and feels to have plastic surgery. So here you guys go.

Alright Pervs!! So they're not that bad! I will admit it did take some courage to put those on here.

So now it's off to bed. Wish me luck. Next time you see me I'll be post surgery and most likely f'd up on Pain Meds! Hopefully...

    I, too, am sorry for the loss of Lou. My 17yo kitty went in and got a bump removed, too. My heart goes out to you-- animals are such a huge part of our lives.

    Killer shoes, cute outfit!

    Good luck with your surgery! And thank you for being open-- I'm sure your bravery will be helpful to those contemplating going down the same path.

    Chin up! We're pulling for you in your recovery!

    I'm so sorry for the loss of your kitty. :-( We recently had to put one down too after an instant attack from his liver, so I know what you're going through. Its so hard to walk in the door and not see them there. :-( My thoughts are with you guys!

    Your pics aren't bad at all, you look awesome actually and look like you have a LOT of muscle on the third pic.

    Good luck though in your surgery! Can't wait to hear about it after!

    You look great and will look even better after surgery. I don't think you're nuts at all for posting them but then again I also posted bikini pics. I'm sorry to hear about Lou and that the lump came on so suddenly. I'm sure he was grateful for the wonderful years you gave him after being adopted!

    So sorry about the loss of your beloved furbaby Lou. We had to have our precious furbaby Cocoa euthanized about 1 1/2 years ago, and I know how painful that is. Can't wait to see some after pictures, it's great that you're sharing such a personal experience.
